Sashes are made of water-repellent Polyprotex which is a kind of polypropylene or of ECO satin Viscose (Rayon) - acetate fabric, made of wood cellulose . The bands have a beautiful shiny reflection, so-called glossy, exterior, which is the side we print on. The other side of the ribbon, the inside, is matt. Fringes made of lurex in metallic gold or silver color included for attachment to the ends of the ribbon, giving it a more fancy look. Of course, it is optional if you want to use the fringes, they can also be avoided and the ends can be cut in other formations than the straight end we deliver them in. On the product page, we illustrate how you can cut them in diagonal shape, V-cut or as an arrowhead. Self-adhesive velcro also comes along and is used to assemble it instead of sewing it together. There are several advantages to velcro rather than sewing. Velcro makes it easy to take it on and off and it can easily be adjusted in size. The safety is also a factor taken into consideration here, because if it is sewn together, there may be a risk of suffocation if an accident occurs and the wearer is catching something with the band. It will not happen with velcro, because it will immediately be separated.
Printing on our sashes is made using the thermal transfer technique, where a special high quality film is used. This print is highly resistant to scratching and rubbing in order for the text to remain intact and clear despite use, it will be a shame if the text is suddenly unreadable, when you have made the effort of designing a nice personal gift for the bearer. The available colors are black, metallic gold or metallic silver. The metallic colors fit all ribbons and the text is beautiful and shiny so it looks glamorous. Black text is fine for the light backgrounds.
